The Great War and the Orient

The Great War and the Orient

From Sunday 10 September 2017 to Sunday 12 November 2017

The Alfred Danicourt Museum is dedicating 2017 to the Orient and in particular India, reflecting on the arrival of Indians in the Somme, some of whom are buried in the La Chapelette Cemetery. The exhibition was conceived with the help of the Les Comptoirs de l'Inde association and presents the history of Indian troops in 1914-1918 through 35 information panels and various historic objects.
A series of conferences on the same theme will be proposed throughout the year.
